Blade Runner 2049 --> 1/16/18

Bluray
4K

is this not going to get a 3D release here in the states? i know it's not cinematographer's preferred style, but would be nice to have option and maybe add some depth...

What depth -- artificial depth? It wasn't shot with 3-D in mind.

whatever depth. 3D movies on bluray tend to bring that out and I like depth. It might just add a little, but it’s something and as they always say...”something is better than nothing.”

Well some like a step up from the digital version (which you’re content with) and like the physical disc for the best presentation, whether that be the 2D or the 3D. For me: 3D can sometimes work and it sometimes doesn’t. Some movies you should see on bluray or 4K and some, lesser effects driven digital is just fine...

The thing is with a film like Blade Runner 2049 is that the 3-D is a step DOWN. I mean, if you're a 3-D fan then that's your thing, but this movie was not meant for it especially if it wasn't shot natively in 3-D.

It's a stupid gimmick otherwise.

Why was it released in 3D then? And before you say "So theaters can charge more", that scheme clearly hasn't been working for them lately as 3D showings have tended to get fewer people overall (I just don't go to any of them and wait for the disc to come out, since the theaters here pretty much suck anyways.) I know DP Roger Deakins has said that he prefers this in 2D, but if he really felt strongly about it then he could've refused to work on the movie or have his name on it if they converted it to 3D. With the 2D IMAX version also having a different aspect ratio though, this is one case where including both that and the 2.35 3D version would be optimal. (IMAX's whole thing of marketing that "taller is better than wider" is pretty retarded also.)

There's definitely a 3D steelbook of this coming out in Europe, and I've at least seen a space for a 3D edition from Warner on one of their 'product pages'. Again since my local theaters suck, that's how I'll end up seeing it.

Great thread. Why didn't we wait for an announcement/release date?

Hoping to see it this weekend but I’d buy the Bluray sight unseen regardless.

So theaters can charge more money? You mean so the studio can get more money. Roger is a cinematographer. He got his paycheck -- it's work. He doesn't own the film. He cannot dictate financial terms. It's out of his hands. The studio paid for the shitty post-conversion and it's on them to see if they recoup. This is nothing new. Post conversion 3-D films are garbage. Do it natively or fuck off with that shit.

I thought the 3D effects were very tasteful and well done!

I don't think they could've put any less thought into that cover art.

That crappy cover pretty much guarantees that I'm buying the Steelbook 4K version even if I don't yet know what it looks like.

Wow, you're not kidding. That's very disappointing.

Indeed. Especially since some of the original poster art looked great and complimented the first film’s poster art nicely.

Looks like just another variation of the theatrical poster artwork

And the Digital HD will be released on 12/26, which is what I'm going to get -- hopefully they'll have it disc/digital for $19.99 on VUDU. If they don't then IU will just get the Digital HD version and wait until it drops in price for the hardcopy.

Same here. I guess since the box office take was so low, they need to sell it to the home video crowd based on the actors.

All of the official poster/key art for BR2049 was disappointing, especially considering how awesome and iconic the poster for the original Blade Runner was...
